Why we love Katie Reay Scott – Bridal Makeup artist

At Ellie Sanderson our girls have a range of views when it comes to bridal makeup looks, some of us won’t leave the house without a smokey eye and a red lip whilst others opt for the barely there look. One thing we can agree on though is whatever your normal makeup style might be, for your wedding day a professional bridal make up artist is a must! Our favourite is Katie Reay Scott, .

Katie is an experienced make up and hair stylist based in the home counties, we love her ability to really listen to our brides, finding out exactly what it is they are after and designing their make up to suit. Katie creates beautifully stunning looks from dramatic but flawless smokey eyes to a gorgeous natural design that subtly enhances your features.

Katie offers initial consultations with all her brides where she will explain to you all about-face shapes, shading and highlighting so however much makeup you choose to wear you know all your best features will be highlighted and your less favourite bits diminished! She is also completely up to date with all the latest products and how to use them – it’s amazing how many uses a simple eyeshadow can have!

Makeup when applied professionally will last all day; you will not have to keep looking in the mirror to check that your eyeliner and mascara hasn’t smudged – even after a little tear of joy at the altar! Professional makeup is also the key to great wedding photographs and our favourite photographer David Bostock will vouch for that. David says ” professional hair and make up is essential, it gives the bride confidence and shooting most weddings under natural light it will mean you look amazing with professional foundation applied” David’s other pet hate is ” a wedding veil that isn’t fixed properly – they can really ruin  a brides day with fidgeting now to mention discomfort and coming loose at the wrong point!’ Pay a professional says David.

Another key thing to consider is that you should be relaxed and stress free on your wedding day, not red-faced and stressed because you have lost your best mascara, or your flower girl joggled you whilst you were applying that tricky liquid eyeliner! Katie will take all of that worry away, ensuring you feel beautiful, radiant and happy on your big day! And not forgetting,  sitting in the makeup chair like a superstar whilst getting it done!

Katie is super to work with and also styles our Boudoir shoots and website videos, she really is the best. She was recently shortlisted for UK Wedding Make up Artist by The Wedding Industry awards.
